Information for Undergraduates


Interviews and Applicant Visit Days

We do not normally interview applicants, but we want UCAS applicants to have every opportunity to see the Department and the University for themselves. We therefore arrange a number of UCAS Applicant Visit Days, normally on selected Saturday's in Lent (Spring) term. These are intended for applicants to undergraduate degree schemes who have received a UCAS offer.

We strongly recommend that applicants attend one of these visit days: they give an opportunity to meet students and members of staff in a friendly and informal setting, view the campus and accommodation, and learn more about the courses on offer. They also provide an opportunity to discuss specific queries you may have about studying at Lancaster. Information regarding on campus visit days for 2021 will be updated in due course.

All applicants to whom we make offers are automatically invited, but those who are interested in studying in PPR but who have not firmly decided to apply are also very welcome to attend. They should contact one of the admissions tutors below:
